The Wells Gallery has played a strong role in developing Kiawah Island, South Carolina into a fine art destination. Through its ever changing collection of fine art, the gallery successfully represents an eclectic grouping of contemporary artists from the surrounding region and abroad, who paint in a variety of styles and subject matter.
The Wells Gallery, the premiere gallery at The Sanctuary at Kiawah Island Golf Resort, is dedicated to providing its visitors with a distinctive grouping of contemporary works. This innovative and unique gallery has been carefully designed to enthrall its visitors with its collection of original oil paintings, jewelry, sculpture and glass produced by some of the nation’s most sought after artists.
Primarily presenting the works of regional artists who have proven to embrace the Island for all its splendor and natural beauty, the gallery is the region’s only to specialize in works of art that celebrate Kiawah Island. The gallery frequently holds exhibitions and workshops, making the beauty of the Lowcountry something people can take home with them.
